Detroit schools kick off 'Go Green Week' Monday

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit's schools are going green this week.

Detroit Public Schools spokeswoman Jennifer Mrozowski says Go Green Week starts Monday. She says the district is looking at implementing a program "encompassing energy, waste management, transportation, nutrition, and indoor and outdoor site environments."

She says teachers, students and parents and outside supporters will participate.

On Monday, district emergency manager Roy Roberts will announce some of the initiatives.

The day's activities include a meatless lunch for all students and home weatherization demonstrations from 2-4 p.m. at Ludington Magnet Middle School.

Tuesday's program includes a healthy salad preparation demonstration at Drew Transition Center.
